This Sunday Cleopatra's presents an hour of trailers drawn from the 1960s films of Jean-Luc Godard. If one has never been to the gallery, a charming, if tight spot in Greenpoint, this event presents a fine excuse. The sixties included all of Godard's ill-titled 'cinematic period,' which begins with Breathless and carries on until La Chinoise heralds the arrival of his 'revolutionary' period in 1967. He then spent the rest of decade denouncing most of what he had done previously. In addition to the trailers we are promised: "A treatise on modest acts of time-travel, a variety of coming attractions, a lecture by Jacques Derrida, a Cleopatra’s retrospective and preview, an adventure film, a love story, landscapes of winter and landscapes of summer, a season in hell, Remembrance of Things Past, a surprise party at the home of Mr and Mrs Expresso, real and surreal, tender and cruel." Colby Chamberlain will be providing some notes, and there is a special appearance by Gillian Young. Show begins promptish at 8:45, and is BYOB. Seating is quite limited so arrive early.
